This was originally posted on my other blog, Superheroes and Princesses. I made these last year and plan on making them again this year as a special St. Patrick's Day snack. To make them, I used:
- yogurt covered pretzels,
- green Wilton candy melts,
- green icing (missing from the picture - oops!), and
- green decorating sugar
First, I melted the candy melts and used the melted green candy to attach the pretzels to form shamrocks.
Then, I outlined the shamrock shapes with green icing and sprinkled on the decorating sugar.
Our favorite St. Patrick's Day book is The Night Before St. Patrick's Day by Natasha Wing. It's a fun book about a brother and sister making leprechaun traps to catch a leprechaun. Since first reading this book a few years ago, we have made our own leprechaun traps each year. We are already brainstorming for new and improved traps; maybe this will be our lucky year!
